The IFA has confirmed that two fixtures scheduled for Saturday have been postponed due to the snow.

Donegal Celtic's home game against Linfield was called off after a pitch inspection on Friday.

Glentoran's game against Dungannon Swifts at the Oval was postponed on Saturday morning due to a waterlogged pitch caused by melting snow.

Meanwhile Lisburn Distillery's trip to Coleraine has been given the go-ahead, while Ballinamallard United are due to host Glenavon.

Ballymena United are due to travel to meet Crusaders.

Portadown have confirmed they are hosting leaders Cliftonville at Shamrock Park. No pitch inspection was needed.
